Annual Report 2018

Jun 2019
Conflict is difficult, complex and political. There are no easy solutions for resolving conflict peacefully. So, the world urgently needs to find different ways to respond. Our Annual Report 2018 demonstrates how we are making peace possible.

Creating safe spaces for youth to build peace

This year, the UN’s International Youth Day is championing safe spaces for youth - places where young people can come together, express themselves, and participate in decision making. In peacebuilding, creating these safe spaces is a vital first step in allowing young people to share their experiences of conflict, and work towards achieving a more peaceful future.

Navigating inclusion in peace transitions

May 2018
Based on analysis of four contexts (Nepal, Nigeria, the Somali Region of Ethiopia (Ogaden) and Colombia) this report explores how inclusion is negotiated in peace processes and associated avenues for resolving conflict and effecting political change. While analysis of peacebuilding and peace processes often focuses on elite-led negotiations, this research examines how change is perceived by those living in conflict-affected contexts, and strategies used by different groups to influence political change.

Through our eyes

May 2018
It is nearly ten years since the beginning of the Boko Haram insurgency in northeast Nigeria. Throughout the insurgency, the perspectives of local populations have all too-often been overlooked and excluded. Existing ‘community engagement’ has often been limited to consultation with community elders and traditional leaders on the assumption that they represent the voice of their constituents. This research, conducted in partnership between Conciliation Resources and the Kukah Centre, seeks to capture the local population’s perspectives on existing responses to the violence and their vision for long-term solutions.

From cooperation to contention

Mar 2017
This publication examines the increasing incidence of violent conflict between pastoralists and farmers in Nigeria. It looks at how previous cooperative relationships have broken down in many communities resulting in unprecedented levels of killing and destruction. The report explores the challenges to developing conflict prevention mechanisms, including the layers of political unsettlement that exist at local, state and federal levels, and identifies potential entry points for local conflict resolution.

Si l’épidémie d’Ebola qui s’est abattue sur l’Afrique de l’Ouest il y a trois ans a touché toutes les catégories de la société, les femmes ont néanmoins été celles qui ont le plus souffert des tensions et du conflit engendré par l’épidémie.
